The only thing comparable to the beauty of a woman is the celestial bodies of outer space and Ben Thomas blends those two things in his picture ‘Andrea Morris’ to mesmerize people’s ocular senses. Manipulating a photo portrait of a model wearing an astronaut’s helmet with bokeh effects, Thomas lets viewers experience the surreal sensation of dreaming while remaining perfectly awake.

This dream-evocation quality of his work isn’t mere coincidence either as Ben Thomas proves with his impressive portfolio of digitally tweaked photographs. He often overlays pictures with psychedelic vector graphics and the resulting products have been sublime and crowd-pleasing thus far.

Fans of these Ben Thomas creations can purchase the images as prints, iPod skins and even iPhone covers. Be warned though, Thomas’ images may be so distracting that you forget your iPhone actually has other functionalities. Stats for Space Beauty Photo Manipulations Trending: Older & Chilly
